For the better part of a week, the mainstream media has been avoiding one of the more salacious stories circulating the internet, but the days of simply brushing the tale aside may soon be over.
The story revolves around Hunter Biden, son of Democratic nominee for President Joe Biden, and a laptop that allegedly once belonged to him. Of course, it should be noted that the laptop only allegedly belonged to Hunter Biden, and that the chain of custody of the device is severely lacking in both clarity and verifiability, hence the reluctance by the bigger news networks to address the story.
But at least one of the emails purportedly leaked from the computer has been verified by one of Hunter’s ex business partners, and he’s been talking with Tucker Carlson about it.
“Tony Bobulinski says he met with Joe Biden about China,” Carlson tweeted Monday afternoon. “The media have suppressed the story, but it’s real and it matters. Voters have a right to know the details. Bobulinski sits for an extended interview Tuesday night at 8PM ET on Fox News.”
A press release from Fox News said, “The interview, which will be Bobulinski’s first on camera since coming forward about his business dealings with Biden, Bobulinski will discuss new allegations regarding his relationships with both Hunter and the former Vice President.”
Carlson, who over the summer was declared to have the highest-rated program in cable news history, will conduct the interview exactly one week before Election Day.
One has to wonder if Tucker’s willingness to speak with Bobulinski will bring this laptop fiasco to the forefront of the media landscape, or further galvanize the efforts of Twitter and others to bury the story.
